Live Simply, Speak Kindly, Care Deeply, Love Generously

I watched a video today called, "Life is Like Coffee" and it spoke to me! It reminded me to savor life and made me reflect on what cup I would have taken. I appreciated that this morning.

Onto the Non-workout! This morning my Mom met me and I was not feeling the best but I was going to take on TBL's motto this season and say "NO EXCUSES" get 'er done! We started with our before pictures. I took Mom's and she took mine... and what an eye-opener that was! OMGoodness, I have a lot of work to do but I know that I am taking the steps to do it and deal with it. My Mom looks AMAZING and I am certain she is just doing these workouts to support me and I appreciate it so much. I hope and pray that should I see 54 that I look half as good as my Mom (the truth is I will likely look more like my 300 pound Dad but I am going to try and avoid that). Anyway, following the pictures we popped in Yoga and I started, that is until the pain HIT me. I had severe pains in my chest to the point that I was worried. It felt a lot like the time that I had Costochondritis and I could not power through. After 15 minutes and 64 calories burned I stopped the video and began to reflect. Perhaps there is some wisdom behind the mid-week break, perhaps I haven't been getting enough sleep (the past three nights I have had meetings that kept me out until past 10:00)and/or perhaps I should have taken some Tylenol to get me through. Tonight I am going to try again but I will be taking Tylenol about 20 minutes before and see if I can pump out Yoga. Tomorrow I am going to do the workout in the evening and/or afternoon so that I can catch up on some much needed rest. Should the modified schedule result in the same pains next week I will revert to Tony's schedule the following week.

Just popping in to say HI and tell you to come back tomorrow for our favorites moves of the week. Also, take a moment to wish my Mom a safe travel to Ontario.. she is leaving tomorrow morning to go to my sister's house and help her paint. I know, she deserves a MOM OF THE YEAR award!

Make it a great day!

You were definitely smart to stop! I've pushed through pain and then I end up in pain for days b/c I didn't stop. Take it easy and hopefully it was just a freak thing!

Your mom is the best!!! So are you!!!

Good for you for listening to your body..sometimes we just need a little rest.

I also had costrocondritis! The first flare up I though I was having a heart attack and went to the hosp..scared the heck out of me!
